Morningside college is a great private school. The class sizes are small and very teacher to student oriented. The teachers and staff at Morningside College actually care about you and your future. They are willing to do what it takes to get you on the right path; they will work with you! One thing I would like to see change on Morningside's campus is the outside activity in the fall and spring. Morningside has a beautiful campus and there is always students walking around. However, I would love to see more activities outside and involvement. Perhaps this could be done through groups and organizations on campus!
Review Morningside College
Many students participate in either playing the sport or supporting the team. Everyone cheers on the sports because all of the students are close with one another. Because Morningside is a small school, students who cheer actually know everyone who is playing. The athletic teams are very successful; the cross-country and football teams were amazing this year. The facilities are amazing and extremely friendly to students who don't participate in athletics. The gym is always open and has some very nice equipment that is definitely up to date!
This school is amazing and I am so happy I chose this school! The professors are amazing and even the President of the college is so welcoming! I wouldn't change this school in any way but the cafeteria food. Morningside is so unique because of the many resources that this school provides; there are tutors for every subject available every day, a writing center that is available every day, and the professors have an open-door policy. The activities committee plans extremely fun events that range from comedians or stunt performers to politicians. I am very happy with Morningside, and I feel I made the right decision for my future.
